it was then senator obama, a young first-term senator who did not have very much foreign policy experience was being questioned whether he was up to the test of commander in chief, not just by republicans but by his own vice presidential nominee who said at an event that obama would be tested early if his first term if he was elected by folks around the world as to whether or not he had the meddle to -- mettle to get the job done. they believe he has. listen to the president last night paying his case. >> four years ago i told you i would end the war in iraq. we did. i said i would end the war in afghanistan. we are. i said we would focus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today, osama bin laden is in more. >>reporter: there lab a dip, though, in the president's approval rating regarding handling of foreign policy in the fox news poll and the nbc and "wall street journal" poll in recent weeks after the terror attack in libya. however, in the polls the president is still doing well on foreign policy but the point is, their vulnerability on the issue, especially in recent weeks after the

, senator obama and senator mccain asked us to do one with the podium. they did the same this time with the governor and the president. we are not going to argue about the format as long as they don't touch the integrity of the format itself. we think a better format in getting full discussion of issues in depth of discussion of issues is when you are seated at a table, rather than standing behind a podium. >> no one is more aware than you of all the discussion, and a lot of criticism of the first round of debates this season and how jim lehrer moderated. the commission has put out a statement saying he did exactly the way he wanted, which was a much more open format. take us behind the scenes. since that debate happen, how much discussion internally about how to moderate the open format differently this time around. >> susan, nothing has changed. we think jim did exactly what we asked him to do. the only time limits, and they will be tonight also, and the first question is asked, the candidates will have two minutes to respond. after that, there are no other time limits. it is jus

say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii

bill guess who one of them was, senator barack obama voted against it. now he later voted against it for it so i guess he was against it before he was for it. that's the problem with things like that, because you have a voting record. let's look at the newest attack ad against mitt romney. >> my name is richard hane and i pick up mitt romney's trash, residents do come out and shake our hands and sometimes give us hugs and you know, the service we provide. i'm 55, 65 years old my body will care about that, and romney doesn't care about that. >> of all the ridiculous political ads i've seen in my life i think this maybe ranks at the top. mitt romney doesn't deserve to be president because he doesn't give his trashman a hug, because more than anything else, that's what i want in a president, one who hugs the trashman. first of all, let me say, people who pick up trash do a good and important job and they work very, very hard, a job most of us won't want to do. but it doesn't mean that it's typical that we go out and hug them. i mean, seriously, have you ever gone out and hugged your

we're going to cover until the election day. they backed then senator obama by double digits four years ago. now women voters are evenly split on the president and mitt romney. erasing an 18-point lead that the presidt had just last month. maria cardona is in washington, or as i like to call her, mcdmc. republican strategist and cnn contributor in new york is ana navaro there. >> i like what l.c. calls me, the solution. >> that's right. we came up with that. >> can we believe the numbers? how is this going to shape tonight's vice presidential debate if anybody is putting stock in these numbers? >> i think the movement clearly come comes from the bounce that mitt romney enjoyed from his performance last week. the question, is it sustainable? look, there's no question that there was nowhere to go but up for mitt romney. because the gap was so big. the question is going into tonight's debate, will it hold? and that's going to be a big question. and i'm going to say probably not. because mitt romney gave us a big opening, even just yesterday where he continued to, i would say flip flo

to be a -- remember that when president obama became president he did have a democratic house and senate, perhaps not the 60 votes but he had, you know, the votes necessary to control things in the congress of the united states. he had some problems there as well. i mean, if i were to be critical of the president and maybe not be my place to do so, but if i were, it would be along those lines. i don't think that he has done a particularly good job of communicating with either party. i was there on the floor of the house when they were doing the obama care legislation and there was a lot of grumbling. i'm not talking about just those democrats that voted against it. there was a lot of grumbling from the other democrats that the white house had not been very flexible in terms of working things out with them. i can tell you as a moderate republican that i was at the white house and we had a session with rahm emanuel and the president told us he should communicate with us on these issues, particularly health care, and that never really happened either. i think that's a bit of a problem with this pres

's world wide security protection program pops below the 2.1 billion by the obama had been attrition the republicans cut the administration request for the security funding by 128,000,331,000,000 in fiscal 2012 and negotiations in the senate restored 88 million of the administration request so that is some background for you to name. remember our coverage at noon today when the hearing begins. tune into c-span2 watch of this morning. thanks for waiting and what are your thoughts on that? >> caller: good morning, c-span2 read i guess my main comment is that the whole purpose of affirmative action was to write a does diminish our policy over the course of history in the united states but it's not been applied appropriately. it would be more fair if it was a place on your income level so that the whole purpose of these people could have social mobility but it's not apply to people that come from low-income homes who don't necessarily have the same opportunity that many people have from middle class or upper class homes i think that creates bitterness from many people on that. last i fee

they would execute them. what romney's position seemed to be is obama's talked a big game but hasn't really executed on it so you've got the middle -- >> but he has, hasn't he? whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. i had this argument earlier with a senator. i said to him he literally has executed it. he executed gadhafi, bin laden. he hasn't stopped executing people. and whether you think the middle -- >> do you think that we're safer now? >> yes. >> it's true that osama bin laden was killed -- >> do i think america is safer without osama bin laden or gadhafi or any of these despots, absolutely i do. >> but we're seeing that we've just had a situation where an ambassador was killed and we were told for about a week that it was because of a movie on youtube? that doesn't fill me with a lot of confidence. i think that's what a lot of this is about. it's about okay, we're going to be strong. we are going to put action behind our words instead of just saying i hope that we'll be nice and maybe they'll like us. >> okay. let's turn to maria again. apparently we have got to be strong. what does that mean? >> l

jumped out of my seat and was satisfied with this whole debate. if obama loses, it was because he didn't kick congress in their ass every day of this campaign. i watched the debate in 2004 and the president of the senate got after john edwards about -- if he would have did that, whoo! it would have been over. >> bill: yeah. i loved that -- when he pointed out that one of the reasons -- when joe biden pointed out that one of the reasons we're in this mess is this guy right alongside of me voted for two wars and put it on a credit card. he nailed paul ryan on that one. good job joe. more calls coming up. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: oh, boy. 33 minutes after the hour now. friday morning. all right glad to see this weekend come, any weekend come actually, and we have lots to celebrate this morning before get into the weekend here on the "full court press." good to have you with us. we'll get back to your calls about last night's debate. boy martha raddatz gets a lot of praise compared to jim lehrer.
